Lectio Divina in Adult Forum starting Sunday, Oct. 7 (and continuing through the month of Oct.)

You may not know this, but Joanna Robinson trained to be a spiritual director. Then life interceded and she became a school teacher! Or you may not even know Joanna Robinson!

So during the month of October (beginning this Sunday at 10 am), you have the opportunity to get to experience some “spiritual direction” and get to know Joanna better. She will be leading the Forum in a spiritual practice that is called Lectio Divina, or “divine reading.”

Using one of the scripture readings for that day, in this case Luke 4:16-21, she will ask the class to hear the passage, and then to be silent while they experience the passage, listening for what God has for them. Then she will ask everybody to journal a bit about their experience. Finally, people may share the thoughts or insights they have had.

It’s a different and a disciplined way to approach and experience Scripture and to be enriched how others might experience it differently. This practice asks that you make a commitment to being part of the group that’s going to approach the Scripture this way each week for the whole month of October. So make a personal commitment to being in Adult Forum every Sunday this month, will you?
